2 courses "near" me. The first one which is the better one, but really busy on weekends is 30 minutes drive. The other one is 40 minutes. Before I bought my car I use to do it on my 125cc Honda Wave with my clubs across my shoulders and resting on the back seat! That was fun coming back in the dark on country roads with clueless Thai drivers flying past. I have been known to travel over 3 hours to play golf, but that was to play Amata Springs in Chonburi which is rated as one of the best in the country.
If i dont want to spend more than 40/round then I have to drive anywhere from 30-60 min. Being in Houston, it could be 10 miles but those 10 miles could take an hour with traffic. I personally like the drive to the course, I like to do some course planning on my way there.
If you dont like your course, take the time to drive somewhere else.....
